6th International Conference: Diagnostic Error in Medicine


Diagnostic errors (missed, delayed, incorrect diagnoses) account for significant harm but are underemphasized and understudied. The Diagnostic Error in Medicine 6th International Conference aimed to Define, Measure and Improve diagnostic errors, with an exciting line-up of speakers and educational programming. The Conference gathered health professionals together for important dialogue and information sharing to improve patient.

The goals of the Conference were to:

  • Acknowledge the frequency, impact, and public health significance of medical misdiagnosis
  • Develop a constituency of advocates from across the healthcare delivery spectrum
  • Define the causality of, and exploring strategies to improve, diagnostic error in medicine
  • Share research methods and results relevant to clinical reasoning, diagnostic error, and misdiagnosis-related harm
